Resort 2013 : Jonathan Saunders

Jonathan Saunders has a very colour blacked resort collection. All pieces are paired with contrasting colours and stand out for its boldness. Many of them have a lovely jacquard throughout. Then come the gradient prints which look like noise patterns to me. I think the beehive shape is cute though. I love all the outerwear in this collection. The finale red coat dress is really beautiful.                             Image Credit : | Entire CollectionRead more

Resort 2013 : Lela Rose

Lela Rose's collection consists of pencil dress and silhouettes that certainly shape the body well. I like the colour blocked orange dress, the ivory strapless gown with the embellished bodice. I like that all outfits here have something unique about it, be it the print, technique or colour. The backless cobalt blue gown is gorgeous. I feel that the collection lacks separates though.                                     Image Credit : | Entire CollectionRead more

Resort 2013 : Valentino

Valentino's resort collection feels like you've just stepped into a big garden. All the dresses have floral appliques which look absolutely gorgeous. I can't go into very detail here because there are so many that I adore. But some of the pieces that do stand out are the magenta leopard print dress, the white lace jumpsuit, the powder blue floral dress, the lace green trousers and the pastel floral coat.                                              …Read more

Resort 2013 : Elizabeth and James

Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen's collection looks like an extension of their own fashion imprint. I like the colour palette here. That beautiful yellow colour is universally flattering. The clothes are casual but retain an air of poise and formality. I love all the shirts in this collection. The grey and cream blazer tow tone blazer is perhaps my favourite from this collection.                             Image Credit : | Entire CollectionRead more

Resort 2013 : Emilio Pucci

Emilio Pucci's resort collection, draws inspiration from the safari and military silhouettes. But among these harsh ideas there beautiful and soft kaftans and prints that tone it down it summer. I like the olive green which is a primary colour in this collection. The large embroidered coat in the same is gorgeous. A similar full length kaftan is also very stunning. The peplum maxi dress with a deep v neck and ruffle collar is probably one of my favourites here. I love the blue, black and white combination. I works really well. Other favourites include…Read more

Resort 2013 : Helmut Lang

Helmut Lang's collection has an androgynous but sleek beauty to it. I love the white and beige piped shirt. The two tone grey blazer is gorgeous and looks very futuristic. The latter half of the collection showcases an abstract print. It reminds me of the Star Trek keyboards and that's enough to have me on board. But I like the dark brown top with that glossy print as well as the cream dress with the black print.                           Image Credit :…Read more

Resort 2013 : J. Mendel

I'ma  sucker for gorgeous sheer flowy gowns and J.Mendel's collection left me speechless. The tight bodice silhouette with the twisted piping that goes across and the beautiful sheer layers below, it looks so amazing. This collection has your pop of colour in the floral dresses, faux fur paired with leather and gorgeous gowns in muted colours. One of my favourites is the crushed metallic print dress with pockets. It looks very modern and casual at the same time. That grey-blue colour is just lovely and the very first gown in that shade has an…Read more

Resort 2013 : Jen Kao

Jen Kao's resort collection leans towards athletics.  Light easy fabrics with comfortable and simple silhouettes dominates the collection. But there are a few different pieces as well. The tight bodice dress with criss-cross piping and graphic prints make this collection busy. I like the argyle white sweater with the pattern denim and plaid pants. The coat in plaid and a sky blue lapel looks very mature. But I do like the final dress with the print over black and the sheer fabric on the sides.                  …Read more

Resort 2013 : Stella McCartney

Floral blazers and suits are so on trend this season, Stella McCartney's collection too features them heavily. But what makes this collection unique is the inclusion of holographic accessories. That iPad clutch in the silver holographic finish is what I want! (with an iPad too! :p ) Leopard print separates and combined in a collection with printed floral ones. I like the yellow printed oversize trousers. The low hung waist floral dress with fringe accents is gorgeous. The sheer lace pants look very interesting. The orange floral suit is also one of my…Read more

Resort 2013 : Nina Ricci

Nina Ricci's resort collection is very flirty and and feminine. I love all the lacing, chiffon flowy dress and ruffles. There's something very easy about all the styles; like careless chic. I like the maroon cover up dress with a lace bodice and fringe bottom. The full length like pink dress in a similar style is gorgeous. Moving on to the cream and gold floral patterned dresses, they look very stylish. One of the most stunning pieces is the white sequin suit with the frayed edges. Also the black sheer gown. I loved…Read more
